I met this girl yesterday and maybe 2 minutes after we met, she asked me to do something for her. I was flattered. She wanted me to be the featured speaker at a function that she was having and address her group about business. I asked how many people would be attending this event and she said a few hundred. I guess it’s hard for people to understand that talking in front of big groups isn’t exactly my specialty.
I mean I speak in front of people on the radio every single day right? So I should be great at this whole talking thing…. But no…actually, nothing could be farther from the truth. I suck at that. It does take a special type of person to speak WELL in front of a few hundred people about a topic that MAYBE I have done for a long time but its also something that I don’t talk about in front of a big group about. MAYBE, just MAYBE I could speak about how I got started in the limo business, tried out for the cowboys, got shot as a child, got into radio, bought a bar in Mexico and then one in Texas…but I don’t really think those would be very interesting stories. Unless we are all sitting around the bar having a few drinks… if that’s the setting, I’m your guy. Otherwise, not so much. So, I really hope that she didn’t take it personally but I had to decline. I wanted to ask her if she had heard the radio segments (plural) that we play all the time displaying how “well” I speak in front of just a couple of people. So, I guess I’m saying, thank you for thinking about me and I’m flattered that you would think that I have a story to tell, I really do appreciate the offer…but no thank you.
John Travolta. Dude, NOOOOOOOO…it ain’t so. Not the Pulp Fiction dude. Not the guy that I interviewed 3 times and the same guy that I have described as one of the nicest celebrities ever. Not Vinnie Barbarino…I refuse to believe that John Travolta is assaulting men. I’m sorry. That does not compute in my brain. Not guilty, y’all got to feel him… well, no.. Don’t FEEL him. That’s how all of this got started.
Yes mommy. I’ll be over there today as soon as I get off work to adjust your water hose the way it needs to be so that you can turn it on and off easier. I love you!
